The Prodigal Ute by Paul Clark

Wombat Books, 2010. ISBN 9781921633102.
This is an interesting take on the parable of the prodigal son but it is being told to cars in a church car park. The prodigal here is a utility truck that makes sure it is stolen in order to get to the city where it believes life will be more exciting. Unfortunately the truck ends up rusting on the street forgotten and alone wishing it were back on the farm. This is a small soft cover with a lot of text for its size and it is hard to find a suitable reading age or audience for it.
